The crystal-clear water of the spring maintains a constant temperature of 72 degrees Fahrenheit, making it an ideal spot for year-round snorkeling and diving. Admission to Devil's Den is $18/pp Monday-Friday and $25/pp Saturday and Sunday for snorkelers. You can also rent snorkel gear for an additional $12. Scuba diving is $38 dollars with an option to rent full scuba gear for an additional $45. Snorkelers MUST make a reservation prior to visiting.

Florida Alligators and Saltwater Crocodiles: Coexisting with our Prehistoric Neighbors in and around St. Petersburg, FL.
The Burg offers a delicious mix of sunshine, wildlife preserves, lakes, sandy beaches, and rich ecosystems supporting diverse wildlife. Urban coyotes, Muscovy ducks, raccoon, shorebirds, and possum are seasonal showoffs throughout the city and our neighborhoods. Our lakes, ponds, parks, preserves, and shores supply rest stops for all to carve out a spot to live wild, if not urbanite. Two inhabitants were here before us and before most. Alligators and saltwater crocodiles. Two reptilian species that, like sharks, have inherited reputations rather than earned them.

Mote Marine Laboratory & Aquarium | Sarasota, Florida | Fun Day with Family
Mote Marine has had its history here in Florida since 1955. Originally opened in Placida, Florida. It had its headquarters in Sarasota since the 60's and officially opened the aquarium to the public in 1980. My husband and I haven't been here since elementary school on a field trip, so it was nice to bring our kids back and see the wonder and amazement in their eyes. We visited September 21, 2022, during the week. Which was a great time to go, it wasn't busy at all. I am sure on weekends and holidays and in the winter months they are much busier. But as a local we know when not to go, lol. Thanks for watching, we hope you enjoy!

Local shops sell brightly colored swimwear and kitschy souvenirs that say things like “Life is better at the beach” while children are chased by their parents as they cross the brick-lined streets. It’s loud, busy, colorful, and entirely St. Augustine, Florida.
